Esprit Montagne : concrete ideas behind our Philosophy
For us ecology is not an option, the protection of nature and biodiversity belongs to all people on the planet!
It is no longer a utopia to save the planet: more than half of people think that we must evolve to leave a planet worthy of Man to our children.
We prefer to think that the utopia is that of people who think that we can continue as before!
Mountain Trips Respectful of Nature and Human Work!
We reduce transports as much as possible by creating trips that leave from the main train stations in the Alps and by promoting car-sharing between the members of the same group who apply to it upon booking! We will send you the email list of participants who wish to car-share, in order to get in touch with each other.

Fair prices that value everyone's work
In addition to ecology, one of the key elements of Esprit Montagne's philosophy is to maintain fair prices and not fall into the downward spiral of competition, in order to highlight the value of everyone's work and always guarantee a high quality of our products.
We recognize the value of our Trekking and Mountain Guide, as well as of hut keepers so that everyone is happy to work with us and so that they always welcome you in the best possible way!
